“Laura has delivered a number of workshops for our students and graduates who are aspiring entrepreneurs here at the University of Brighton. The workshops we commissioned Laura to deliver, on how to develop effective digital marketing strategies, and how to plan and produce effective video pitches, were very informative and engaging. Laura brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her workshops, and was able to recommend a range of practical tools and techniques for our students to use in their own video pitches. Laura is clearly passionate about video production, and is very knowledgeable about the subject. I would not hesitate to commission her again.”
Clare Griffiths, Business Development Manager (Entrepreneurship)
“I can’t recommend Laura highly enough.
She quickly grasped the nature of the film that we needed to make and she was very sensitive to the difficult subject matter that we were trying to convey to our audience. Laura was happy to visit myself and my teenage son who has a severe learning disability, to film our mornings “getting ready for school”. This can present very tricky moments as my son frequently displays difficult and challenging behaviour. Laura took this all in her stride and made me feel comfortable when she interviewed me.
Laura’s skilful narrative, filming and editing had significant impact on local politicians in our area, securing investment in short breaks for children and young with people with special educational needs and disability.”
Fiona England, PaCC Brighton
“We had so much fun! She knows how to settle someone down and really bring out the best. We were absolutely delighted with the results.It was effortless on our part. We ran all our scripts past Laura. She helped bring out the consistencies and the important variations between the scripts. Laura controlled the whole day, she managed it.
We had about 10 times more interest in the videos than we did in the printed version so from our point of view it was a huge success. We commissioned Laura to produce our vision statement video. This involved filming people at work, getting the best out of them getting them to relax without disrupting the work they were doing and then doing the voiceover to produce what was an absolutely stunning 6 minute piece that we showed at the beginning of our annual staff conference. A lot of our people said that for the the first time they actually understood what our vision strategy had been all about. Our CEO nearly cried, he was really quite emotional.
We would absolutely recommend Laura. So much so that we are talking to her about 3 other projects and we are hoping she will become an integral part of our promotional and communication strategy.”
Mark O’Halloran, Head of Commercial Services
Laura has been behind all of The Marketing Eye videos, and I don’t just mean behind the camera. She has guided us on content, format, presentation style and promotion, and the output is consistently a video that we can be proud of. To anybody not used to appearing in video, the prospect of doing so can be daunting, but Laura has been great at settling the team into the process, relaxing them and giving them tips on their presentation style. I’d even go as far as to say many of the team look forward to doing videos now!
We engaged Laura to create the in-conference video for our client CaFE at Xerocon 2017. This involved interviewing CaFE team members and conference delegates as they visited the stand. Laura was fearless in approaching delegates and excellent at persuading them to speak to camera. The post-production result is a lively and engaging video that shows our client’s product creating buzz and being endorsed by its potential users – just what was wanted. The client is delighted.
Neil Edwards, CEO
Laura has helped me with all technical aspects of making videos to support my business. What would have taken me forever to have found out for myself, she offered the support and knowledge to get started. She also provided me with insightful feedback with my performance on camera. I am now at a stage where I feel confident enough to make and produce the videos my self.
Rue Asher, Owner
“I had a very particular video project I needed support on. The ideas that we were coming up with felt a bit dull and that they weren’t really going to work. With Laura’s support we were able to make a far more creative and inventive video that was so much better than we were expecting and really delivered results. We ended up with some spectacular videos that were spot on for our brand.
It was great for us that we could work with someone who could turn the creative ideas around and produce something excellent in a short frame of time. The videos produced worked really well in the format we’d intended them for (YouTube) but we were so pleased with them we also used them at the conference. They got a great response on the day in front of thousands of people.”
Kelvin Newman, Founder
We recently used Laura for a days shooting of several videos and Laura made everyone feel at ease which was great. Laura has also helped with Facebook and YouTube and is always helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
Julia Vearncombe, Founder
“We wanted videos made for promotions and a general film for the public to feel the vibe here at DHY. Laura had a very good understanding of our brand and definitely delivered this in the video. Laura had questions prepared and made the participants relaxed and made it an easy process, perfect interview style I would say. Our participants enjoyed it very much. We are very pleased with the finish of the videos, we will definitely work with Laura again and highly recommend her service.”
Aftab Miah, Director
“We used Laura for a series of videos across a 5 month campaign. I was impressed by how much she managed to achieve in the allocated hours. She was knowledgeable about social media and made many helpful suggestions. Best of all we have enough content to see us through the next 6 months.”
Lisa Honan, Director
“Laura has been great to work with. She has been very flexible, fitting round the busy schedules of the people we were filming for our promo video. She made them all feel at ease, and we ended up with a great video that met our objectives perfectly.”
